Tamagotchi Meets, the latest version of the Tamagotchi series, was released on 23 November, 2018. I sometimes talk about kawaii characters such as tamagotchis because some of Tokyo Direct Guide followers (especially Tumblr followers) are big fans of them!
I’ve talked about so many things about tamagotchis, including 4U and m!x, so far. I’d like to write an article about the newest version again. Enjoy!
Tamagotchi Meets App
One of the biggest feature of Tamagotchi Meets is that the device gets connected to the iOS & Android app via Bluetooth.
It’s available only in Japan now, so I suppose some of you are desperate to see how it’s like. I understand your feelings. I was just like that when My Tamagotchi Forever was released worldwide except China and Japan… I’ll upload many pics here so you can experience some of it!
Actually I hadn’t used Bluetooth (my headphone has a cord), so it took more time than I thought. When the connection failed, I looked up Bandai’s support email address, but I didn’t need to be upset. I went to my phone’s setting, turned Bluetooth off and on, then it was all successful.
You can take your tama to Meets Park in the app like this!
When other people are visiting Meets Park, their tamas appear here. If you tap a tama, you can see who raised him or her – the user name (and hometown if it is set in the app) are displayed. In fact, the other tamas in this pic are preset characters, but I’ve seen others’ tamas, of course! (At this moment, it’s pretty hard to tell which is a preset character and which is someone’s because the first generation is Mametchi, Lovelitchi, etc, for everyone. I think it’s a good idea to wear a hat to attract attention!)
On Wednesday and Sunday, parties are held in the Meets Park. When your tama has grown up, you can find someone to marry there!
So my Mametchi joined the party! Mametchi with Santa Clause hat someone in Japan raised was there, too. That’s how this app is fun. And this is why a hat is attractive in the app – I regretted my Mametchi wasn’t very fashionable.
The result? Someone’s Mametchi found a partner, but mine was declined by Nijifuwatchi… I was so sad. This party is not like a mini game, so I have little control over it. My Mametchi failed to find a girlfriend 3 times, but I don’t think it means he isn’t cool. Cheer up, my dear!
Yay, finally!!! If you say “Yes” to their marriage, they go out together.
Their wedding was so heartwarming…
Congratulations, my Mametchi!
In my opinion, weddings in the app will be more interesting when people bring tamas with more interesting looks. After the app update in late December, the default tamagotchis who take part in the party have more complicated genes than ever. Yes, it’s getting better and better!
But my story didn’t end. See what has happened to them?
TWINS were born!! It is another new feature of the Meets. I gave a name to each of them and started to raise them.
If you want to see tamas I raised, please follow my Tumblr!
Notes about the App
You can register 3 Meets devices at the most. You can remove one easily.
iOS version 10.0 – or Android 6.0 – are required for this app.
How to Unlock the New Destinations
In Tamagotchi Meets, all the destinations are inside Tama Resort Island and there are “areas” in the island. It’s different from Tamagotchi m!x, in which the destinations were “towns” in Tamagotchi Planet. I love the resort tastes!
The following contains spoilers. Read more if you want to know how to unlock the destinations.
Just try to go out by hitting the 7th ship icon.
Eat the omelet & rice at the restaurant 5 times.
Sebiretchi gave me the hint in the park.
Tama Farm (Updated!)
Visit Gourmet Street 10 times.
Personally I love the sushi game so much. You push the A or B button when the sushi that your tama wants comes to the arrow. If you want some gotchi points, I think it’s more efficient the other mini games at Tama Depa. Just try it!
What’s amazing is that we can grow plants at Tama Farm. I harvested a huge durian. It’s kept in the fridge and eatable as a snack.
Toy Park (Updated!)
Wear the drum (accessory), and the teddy bear will take your tama to the Toy Park.
Your tama must be the 2nd generation or more.
Tama Sports Plaza (Updated!)
Use the ball when 2 or more characters are on your Friend List.
I played with 2 characters at the Meets Station to fulfill this condition. But… it’s pretty hard for those who live in foreign countries and didn’t ordered both versions, isn’t it? I remember when I told you that unlocking Mermaid Palace required connecting to other Tamagotchi m!x device(s) 3 times, some of you were unhappy about that…
Even if you have only one device at this moment, more versions of Meets will come later and you’ll possibly get one or two. Wait for a while.
Star Lab (Updated!)
Change wallpapers into the astrology theme at night (7 p.m. – ). Your tama must be the 2nd generation or more.
I got the hint in the park as well as Gourmet Street.
Beauty Salon (Updated!)
When the wallpaper is the beauty theme, change body colors twice during one generation and go out to the backyard garden.
I finally did it! There was a rumor like that, so I kept trying. It took long because I had to wait until my tama gets hungry.
If you are looking for color changing foods, try the omelet and lemon cake at the restaurant. If you have the fairy version, the sky blue bread is fine, too.
Fairy Land & Magical Land (Updated!)
Change wallpapers into the fairy/magical theme and push any button at 7:00 – 9:59 (Fairy version)/ at 19:00 – 21:59 when your tama is awake (Magical version).
*Special thanks to Tama Palace. The information above was updated with the helpful article that put together many fans’ opinions.
Automatically unlocked when your 2nd generation or more goes out to the backyard garden.
When you play Egg Hunt at Easter Land for the first time, you automatically get the honey pot. Use it and the bees will take you to Flower Garden!
Flower Garden replaced Tama Farm of Fairy & Magical version. I went to Gourmet Street so many times and thought it was strange that Tama Farm didn’t get unlocked – this is why. You can raise flowers in Flower Garden instead of vegetables!
Go to the park in the morning (by 9:00), and Uwasatchi will give you the 50% discount ticket for wallpapers/accessories!
Let’s Enjoy Tamagotchi Meets with me!
Hope this article was helpful for you. I’ve been posting kawaii-related things (mainly tamagotchis, actually) to Tumblr since I closed the Monthly Kawaii News on Blog Tokyo Direct Diary, but I still love to write a blog article like this.
Hopefully I keep updating this article when I find new things. Tama fans, let’s enjoy our new tama life together!
